How do I use Movie Making?
*Explain a concept -- scientific theory, imaginarynumbers, the cause of economic decline, theme ina story*Recreate an event -- the Battle of Gettysburg, thediscovery of Newton’s Laws, the balcony scene from
the invention of basketball (peach baskets on trees - Ican just see it....)*Tell a story - using still photos from the National Archives - or anycopyright friendly source -- choose an image that “speaks” to you, write astory for that person (part of the fun is that it does not have to be completelyfactual, but the telling of the time period and context should be)*Film a process -- baking bread (recreate Food Network demos), CPR instructions, mathproblems, science labs, conjugating verbs, writing a 5 paragraph essay or a haiku*Edit movies already made -- use United Streaming videos and edit them to the scenesyou need and then add photos and narration to make the creation “do” what you needit to.
